Length 6484 yards
Slope 125
Rating 70.7

The Links of Lake Bernadette enjoys verdant landscaping and a rolling terrain that are perfectly complemented by mature and towering pines. At 6,400 yards, the golf course is seemingly short but it feels like it plays much longer due to frequent doglegs that can be found throughout. Six of the par 4s play over 400 yards and a few par 3s measure over 200 yards, which also helps the course feel longer. Water hazards and bunkers come into play but they are balanced by large greens and wide fairways that make for easier approaches. Although beginners won't feel out of place and there are four different sets of tees, the golf course boasts several tricky holes that will challenge even the best players. One of these, the 163-yard 13th, was once called the best par 3 in Tampa Bay.

Terrible maintenance

Fairways look like they get cut twice a month. Lost several fairway hit balls in 8” tall fairway grass or in clumps of dead grass clippings. No starter so play is totally backed up. Tee boxes are like playing in a cow pasture.

Beyond slow

Horrible conditions and the pace of play was ridiculous. Waited almost 15 minutes for every shot and on every tee

Staff not very friendly, Nothing was mowed

Go into the pro shop which was very stinky. Nothing was mowed. Greens were full of dew until the 5th hole. Goose grass all over the greens. Which wouldn’t have been bad if they were mowed. Goose grass on greens was about 2” high. The fairways looked like the rough! Very disappointed

Great value

The coarse is great! The tee boxes are dry and rough. The greens are ok but they do hold and are faster than they appear. The fairways are in great condition but the bunkers are VERY rough!!! The aesthetic of the bunkers with no sand etc…. The coarse looks like it needs work… the holes are laid out perfectly and is challenging enough ……overall not a bad place and I would play again!!! And again!!

Summer course problem

Golf course tea boxes are shabby. Fairways have weeds and because of rain are not mowed as well as they should be. Greens have a lot of bare spots and weeds on them..

Good value for your money

It was a good course for how much I paid.
The tee boxes were in rough shape.
The fairways were hit or miss (see what I did there) They were either in good shape or overrun with crabgrass.
The greens were slow but in decent shape except for the occasional burn spots, which were huge on a few holes.
Carts we clean, fast, and had a working foot break (Looking at you cart #66)
Staff was friendly.
Shop was a little bare.
On course bathrooms were Port-O-Johns ( Not bad for me, but crappy for the wife)
Sounds like I have a lot of negatives, but it was actually decent for the price.

Not bad for summer

Course in decent shape. Greens have some weeds that easily knock your ball offline. Other than that not bad. Will play again.
